"Walking A Line" as written by Taylor Hawkins, Christopher A. Shiflett, David Eric Grohl and Nate Mendel....
Got my good side at the ready
If the other one is on the mend
Feel it in my bones when you break my back
Break it just to watch me bend
Anyway for once you admit it
No matter what your good book says
Never lookin' back 'cause I ain't no saint
Just another teenage head

You gotta, wait for the feeling and you wait for the feeling
And you wait, and you shiver and you shake
Crawlin' back and forth from the black and white

Over and over again
Over and over and over again
Ain't no turning back cause I'm walkin' a line,
Walkin' a line, walkin' a line
For you

Maybe if you swear you'll save me
Maybe save myself instead
Swear across my heart and I hope to die
Maybe we could just play dead
Runnin' out of time but I'm ready
Run out when I run this red
See you on the chase, I will track you down
Even though you're miles ahead

You gotta, wait for the feeling and you wait for the feeling
And you wait, and you shiver and you shake
Crawlin' back and forth from the black and white

Over and over again
Over and over and over again
Ain't no turning back no there ain't no turning back,
No there ain't no turning back, no there ain't no turning back
Ain't no turning back 'cause I'm walkin' a line
Walkin' a line for you

    General Commentthe fact that Grohl tipped his hat to Cash makes me very, very happy.

    General Commentbarabbas, why do you think this song would have anything to do with Cash's "Walk the Line"?
    It basically has a similar meaning, but that's about it. This song is very different from "Walk the Line".
    And, it's freaking awesome. Should've been a single, instead is just a bonus track.
